Description  
Monet portrayed the industrial port of Le Havre on the northern coast of France. The brilliant orange of the rising sun glimmers amid the damp air and dances on the gentle rippling water. It lights up its iridescent blues and greens. Barely discernible through a cool haze, packed boats on the left billow smoke from their stacks. This was painted in March or April of 1873, as France struggled to rebuild following the Franco-Prussian War. There is a thought that this painting might also metaphorically suggest a new day dawning in France.
